Hi @vicente, thanks for the response. So far this is highly reproducible for me, so please let me know what specifically I can provide to help.
Precision 5520; Windows 10; Chrome 100; no experimental flags; hardware acceleration enabled.
- Open Task Manager and locate Chrome process launched with “–gpu-process”
- Open Chrome
- Enable Paperpile extension
- Go to e.g. www.github.com/pytorch/pytorch
- Refresh page one or more times (observe high GPU usage of the Chrome process)
- Disable Paperpile extension
- Refresh page one or more times (observe usual GPU usage)
Usually I have 10-30 Paperpile tabs open (I like my papers).
Could the excessive usage be due to every tab performing some operation? I wonder if there is some O(n) operation that can briefly overwhelm the GPU. The extension already exhibits (very minor) O(n) behavior elsewhere: whenever a tab with an open paper receives the focus, that tab and every other tab with an open paper briefly display the paper title in the PDF viewer menu bar.
